It’s fitting that the first ever Crypto Literacy Month wraps up on the day of the year best known for donations and philanthropy.
Giving Tuesday follows the crush of Black Friday, and more recently the frantic clicks of Cyber Monday. It’s a moment to pause, reset, and reflect about what is really important as we head into the heart of the holiday season and the end of the year. And then to actually take action on what we think really matters.
OK, so how does Crypto Literacy Month tie into this? Well, this year, one way to try to implement everything you have learned over the past few weeks about bitcoin, DeFi, security, etc., and donate some crypto to your favorite charity or project. And if they don’t accept crypto donations, there are plenty of great organizations that do.
